How do I find out if my county is participating?

     • Call 800-995-VOTE or check with your county clerk. You can find the contact information for your county clerk at http://elections.utah.gov/election-resources/county-clerks.

              

How do I register to vote on Election Day?

      • Go to your polling place and ask for a provisional ballot.

      • Bring ID that shows your name and address. If you don’t have one ID that shows both, you can bring two IDs. See back for more information.

      • Your provisional ballot will be counted as long as you are eligible to vote in the precinct where you cast your ballot.  

Where’s my polling place?

      • Look up your polling place at www.vote.utah.gov.

 Do I need to show ID?

      • Yes. To register and vote on Election Day, you need to show ID with your name and address. 

      • Make sure you go to the polling place for your address. A poll worker will check the address on your ID to make sure you’re voting in the right place. 

      • Your ID does NOT need to have your photo. If your ID has an expiration date, it cannot be expired on Election Day.

What kind of ID can I show?

       • There are a lot of documents you can show as ID to vote. Just make sure you bring something that shows your name and address.

      • Utah concealed weapon permit
